The fine print
- You need a pass for each vehicle driven into the dunes. You do not need passes for your trailer and green sticker vehicles in your truck or trailer, but only for the primary vehicle you drive in with when you enter and exit.
- All passes must display your last name and the license plate number of your vehicle.
- Passes can not be given to someone else.
- Passes may be taken from you by BLM employees if you violate a rule at the dunes.
- FEE MACHINES WILL ONLY SELL WEEKLY PASSES. ALL ANNUAL PASSES MUST BE BOUGHT OFF-SITE.
- Day passes are not available. You must purchase a weekly pass
CA Non-resident OHV Use Permit Stickers
- All vehicles must be registered or permitted to operate in the State of California and a green sticker or license plate clearly displayed.
If you are not a resident of California and your OHV is not registered in your home state, you are required to have a California "Nonresident" OHV Use Permit to legally operate your vehicle. Note: If you already have another state's registration or sticker on your vehicle, it is honored at Dumont, therefore you don't need a CA non-resident sticker.
